    OK, OK. Once again, things are all cool in the grow tent. I'm about 5 days into my final flush. I may take it 3 weeks instead of two, since the one time I did a 3 week flush, it seemed to taste much better than all of my other grows

    Thanks. That 2 week rough patch took a toll on me the yield, but it's cool. I learned a few things, so I get better with the next grow.

    Started smoking at 4 this morning, and didn't stop 'til 4 in the afternoon. Did plenty of smoking while I was smoking...

    Soil acts differently in a hydro style pot. I'm running soil AND coco in the same system, using just one reservoir. I keep PH 6.2 -6.4 and my plants look great. Soil will work in auto pots with a ph anywhere between 6.4 and 7.0 for organic soil. The trick is to get the res stable. big ph swings means you need to improve the buffer. I add baking soda as a PH up and it acts as a buffer. Yes, it has sodium in it but the amount used is so small as to not be an issue. And my ph stays solid even days later. I don't even bother checking ph after I mix my nutes now. I ph to about .5 low, then bring it back to my desired ph with the baking soda.

    All nutrients usable by a plant are "salts" ie, ionic form of an element or compound. As with any other nutrient, use it in moderation and it works well. I add it to all my soil.

    In my water, I always use cal/mag. I use RO water and ad 90-120 ppms of cal mag and never have cal/mag issues, even in coco.

    it may act like a buffer.

    I had suspected molasses wouldn't be good in a res, you may have confirmed that.

    maybe for the hell of it, give my way a try, I use seagrow 16-16-16 the entire grow with great results! I've done this for three grows now and it works well every time. I ph it and forget it till next res fill. auto pots done right are boring but productive!!

    I love that line, Pop!! So true! I felt the same way, up until I started putting molasses in my res. How in the he'll did I not catch that earlier, I truly don't know. I might go all organic next grow, and go with Sacred Nutrients and their line of organic soil ammendments.
    If not, I'll give the 16-16-16 straight thru a try. Almost all saved up for one of those new Mars lights, too, so things might get a bit interesting my next grow.
